The administrative efforts of the Advancement of Children Foundation (ACF) have been further strengthened, thanks to the timely donation of a brand-new notebook computer from the TDC Group of Companies.
Mr. Evris Huggins, manager of the TDC Business Centre handed over the Lenovo E560 computer, valued at four thousand and fifty-five dollars (EC$4055.00) to Ms. Maureen Bailey, Administrator of the Non-Governmental Organisation, at a brief ceremony held at the retail store on Central Street, in Basseterre.
In accepting the much-needed device, Ms. Bailey thanked the company for its generous contribution to assist the organisation’s in carrying out its mandate, which is to make a difference in the lives of young people.
“I really want to express the ACF’s gratitude to the TDC Group of Companies for their generosity, for not only providing the laptop to us but also for once again showing their support and belief in ACF and the work we do in our community. TDC has been a part of our mission since the inception, as a founding partner. Without their support, we would not be able to realise our goals,” said Bailey.
In response, Mr. Huggins stated, “it is a pleasure for the TDC Group to continue its commitment to the AFC. We wish you continued success in your endeavours.”
In 2008, the TDC Group of Companies, and its corporate partners Christophe Harbour, FLOW, St. Kitts Marriott Resort, St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla National Bank along with the Rotary Clubs of Liamuiga and St. Kitts joined forces to form the Advancement of Children Foundation.
The objective of this public, civic and private sector alliance is to counteract the trend of rising violence and antisocial behaviour amongst Youth through the promotion of good parenting, family and social values.
